Mick Fanning is a 34-year-old Australian pro surfer and a three time world champion who was looking to defend his title at the World Surf League (WSL) competition in Jeffreys Bay in South Africa when he got a close encounter he’ll never forget. As Fanning sits waiting on his surfboard on live TV, a shark fin suddenly appears behind him. We see him get knocked off his board and then there’s some general trashing in the water. Finally after what seems like eons, Fanning pops back up and is helped onto a lifeguard boat – miraculously uninjured!
